SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2012 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the release of the first commercially available High-Speed Inter-Chip (HSIC) compliance test software for real-time oscilloscopes. The software automatically tests HSIC signals according to HSIC specifications.
HSIC digital buses enable designers to use USB technology for low-power, chip-to-chip interconnects at speeds up to 480 MB/sec. The technology reduces the complexity, cost and power consumption of electronic devices and lowers manufacturing risks.
The U7248A HSIC compliance test software includes a full suite of HSIC physical-layer tests, including:
o Data eye and mask testing
o Rise and fall time measurements
o Packet parameters
o Bus state timing measurements
The new software is compatible with Agilent’s 90000X, 90000 and 9000 Series Infiniium oscilloscopes with operating software revision 3.10 or higher.
